Prop 65 Disclaimer
To our valued customers in California, in compliance with Prop 65 legislation that purports to limit consumer exposure to certain chemicals, Defense Nutrition has placed the following Prop 65 Warning on a selection of products sold in California:
WARNING: ChocoWhey varieties and Enrobed Nibs, ChocoVegan variety and Enrobed Nibs, Warrior Whey all variety’s, Warrior Bar all variety’s, Warrior Bar Granola all variety’s and all supplements contain naturally occurring lead and/or cadmium, which are known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm.
Lead and cadmium are naturally-occurring minerals found in the earth’s soil, rivers, streams and sources of drinking water and can sometimes occur in plant-based food ingredients. Due to our sourcing of 100% natural whole food ingredients, some of Defense Nutrition’s products contain trace amounts of many minerals and metals, including lead and cadmium. California, pursuant to the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (“Proposition 65”) has established a Maximum Allowable Dose Level (MADL) for lead at 0.5 mcg per day, and for orally consumed cadmium at 4.1mcg per day. One recommended serving of this product contains lead and/or cadmium at levels at or slightly above these levels. None of Defense Nutrition’s products aside from the list above contains more than 0.5 mcg of lead or more than 0.5 mcg of cadmium in a single serving.
Defense Nutrition takes pride in the quality of its products and we are committed to the health and safety of our customers. We are confident in our products and firmly believe that the trace amounts of naturally occurring lead and cadmium that may be present do not present any risk to our consumers’ health.
We at Defense Nutrition and our families use these products everyday, just as you are. Defense Nutrition is committed to continue sourcing only the purest wholesome ingredients and provide cutting edge products tested and analyzed for premium quality and nutritional integrity.
